was george w. bush's brians, then david axlerod is barack barack obama's homer. >> guest: is what? >> host: homer. >> guest: that's a pretty good line i wrote. he is his homer. >> host: what do you mean? >> guest: david axlerod is a brilliant creator of permanent stories for politician -- personal stories for politicians. so when barack obama ran in 2008, he didn't have a record to run on because he hadn't done anything. but he did have to run on was his personal story. the son of a black african and a white middle american mother. a man who sought his identity and found it. who was raised by these saintly grandparents and so forth and so on. this was a story because homer was known for talking about taking a trip and during the trip coming to some inner understanding of one's self. this was a story that david actle -- axlerod fashioned obama. but there is no story. we've seen that story, it's old. he can't run on that story again. and he doesn't have a record in his first four years of success with the economy. i don't think anybody would disagree with that -- to run on, either. can point
vote. the president leads by 50 points and their idea is in colorado and nevada, a state which david axlerod said they would definitely win and a large latino vote in central florida, which is, when i was in the convention, tampa, the puerto ricans, not cuban americans, they want to draw the vote out. they know they're getting clobbered among white voters and this is about 36%. it's interesting that he's going to those states where there is heavy latino populations. they have to make sure that those people who are for obama come out and vote for him. >> fox 5 political analyst mark plotkin. we thank you as always. brian, campaign event cancelled last week by the omagh bama campaign is rescheduled for saturday in prince williams, virginia. >> you heard the race for the virginia u.s. senate seat has polls showing tim kaine holding a slim lead over republican challenger george allen, 50-46 and that lead is smaller than it was six weeks ago. today, cane joined anchor allison seymour to discuss the race as it entered the final stretch and this is a portion. >> reporter: with five days to
. not just the analysts but the advisors themselves. i spoke to david axlerod. david bluff. two of the president's most senior advisors. they think the president could not only win the popular and electoral vote they think he might knock down and win all nine of the remaining battle grounds all across the midwest here like iowa and ohio. that's a bold prediction. we will find out in 24 hours or so whether or not they can back it up. the president on the trail today. sort of trying to not leave anything in the locker room if you will making his final case. take a listen. >> you know that i know what real change looks like because you have seen me fight for it. i have got the scars to prove it i have got the gray hair to prove it. >> and you can see their strategy in the president's plans today. you mentioned at the top, shep, no republic has ever won the white house without winning ohio. so the president today went not just to ohio but wisconsin and wrap it all up here in iowa. they are trying basically to build a fire wall around these midwest battle grounds so mitt romney can't
promise" and erin mcpike. what they can see over our shoulder is that david axlerod is there. we were shouting questions at him. he told me he thinks they'll win ohio by 2% to 3%, but like the romney campaign, as well, jonathan, this is coming down to a handful of states on that one. >> i think with the jobs report, the external events, unless something really out of the blue, a real november is the drive, the external events now repeated and this is -- the election. it's about the level of turnout. we all know obama people can do organizational muscle on election day. and if they do, we should be okay in ohio. if they don't, if there's a big falloff in turnout and it's more like 2010, then mitt romney could win. >> we talk about the last few states that we're seeing. i've been hearing from republicans that wisconsin looks like it might be a better state for mitt romney at this point than ohio is. the obama state does feel -- i would point out that the romney campaign does, too, because they have different kinds of -- that both show them up. we don't know what the real model is like a
as a hail mary thinking they can wrest away those battle ground *. david axlerod said he will shave off his mustache if romney wins the battle ground states. we know jay carney and the rest of the white house staff are doing this for superstition. will david axlerod shave after the election? megyn: men are weird. >> reporter: don't get me started. the thing about the bomber jacket. barack obama commander-in-chief. governor christie wears that fleece that says chris christie, governor. do they need that? >> reporter: is there anybody that don't know chris christie is the governor? megyn: or obama is the president? >> reporter: you should get one that says anchor. megyn: they will say who cares. when the president speaks later today we are told he will use a moderate positive message in these final five days. taking a kinder, jernlter approach you might say. but with such a short amount of time is this too little too late for a campaign that's been criticized for its harsh attacks on governor romney? now to the aftermath of the monster storm that left millions in damage behind. mayor bloomber
in all of them. megyn: that was senior campaign adviser david axlerod suggesting team obama has this race in the bag. but there are no shortage of critics and one expert forecast of a landslide win for governor romney comes with a catch. dick morris is a form advisor to bill clinton. i want to talk to you about you're thinking. you are saying romney landslide. >> david used to work for me an was a good employee. megyn: but you don't see eye to eye. he's wrong. romney will win by a very large margin, a landslide if you will. i believe he will win by more than 5 points in the popular vote and get 325 electoral votes. i think he will carry all the states mccain carried plus indiana, north carolina, virginia, colorado, ohio, new hampshire, wisconsin, pennsylvania and florida. the only swing states obama will carry are michigan and nevada and new mexico. the reason i believe that is if you read the distorted media polls, most of them start off with a far too many democrats and far too few republicans. the latest pew survey has a national margin of 3 points for obama has 4 points more democrats
. the president's senior strategist david axlerod and lindsey graham discussed the plan on cbs's "face the nation." >> it's obvious we can't resolve the challenge simply by cutting the budget. we have cut by $1.1 trillion. but you need new revenues. every objective person who looked at this agrees on that. the question is where is that revenue going to come from? >> no republican will vote for higher tax rates. we'll insist our democratic friend reform entitlements, something we have never done and that's where the big money is at. shannon: doug schoen and grover more gift. thank you, gentlemen. you have taken the heat because you are accused of strong arming republicans into signing a pledge that they won't raise taxes and you are to blame for the gridlock and it will continue. how do you respond? >> the pledge is taken by candidates for office to their constituents and the american people it, a pledge they take to their constituents and they get elected based on that. a majority of the congressmen and house of representatives made a written commitment they will vote against tax increases and we
, and all of the democrats only listen to msnbc. he only listens to david axlerod and rahm emanuel in the beginning. i hope he has learned by virtue of this campaign, yeah, you won, and that's great. but if you're going to govern, you have got to listen to people who have credentials other than those that you conferred upon them. and you've got to give those people a place at the table. and i would even go so far as to suggest to him that in addition to the kind of thing that's been talked about here, widening the base among members of congress, you ought to have some people outside of congress sitting at the table. a conservative economist, a liberal economist, whatever, leave paul krugman out because he's basically a voice for the democratic national committee. but find some people who are thoughtful who will say these are the real consequences of what happens if you don't do any, if you don't do anything. we're at the bipartisan policy center. during the last thing, we put together and the bpc put together a court report of whatd happen if the debt ceiling were not raised and th
-- >> i was wondering, did you and david axlerod do that -- >> yeah, i wish i still had the green inside me, so i could show everybody. no, it wasn't exactly like that. >> stephen colbert wound up with $800,000 in the back -- in the bank for his superpac, and you've arranged for him to cope that. >> actually, it's disappearing. >> pretty much everybody else found a way to spend theirs in. >> did you in. >> just about. we had to pay the lawyers. >> and it was more than a billion dollars of spending by outside groups overall in the cycle. >> uh-huh. >> something like 13 -- i think it's more than the last 11 cycles combined, the outside spending. but the argument's being made that a lot of the largest donors didn't get much more their money, that we wound up with, in some respects, a shadow election. does it turn out that turnout doesn't matter that much? the influence of superpacs has been exaggerated? >> i think we're just beginning to see the influence of superpacs and their nonprofit affiliates and how that plays out. first of all, on the democratic side it turns out that their zucchini
that david ax axlerod saying the speeches are coming from the president's loins, and it has it's own twitter handle already. >> didn't take long, very cute. the president, in the last four days, it's going to get tough out there. >> it's almost over, i promise. mitt romney is also in ohio today, we'll catch up with his campaign and hear how he's using the job's report against president obama. at shell, we believe the world needs a broader mix of energies. that's why we're supplying natural gas to generate cleaner electricity... that has around 50% fewer co2 emissions than coal. and it's also why, with our partner in brazil, shell is producing ethanol - a biofuel made from renewable sugarcane. >>a minute, mom! let's broaden the world's energy mix. let's go. in that time there've been some good days. and some difficult ones. but, through it all, we've persevered, supporting some of the biggest ideas in modern history. so why should our anniversary matter to you? because for 200 years, we've been helping ideas move from ambition to achievement. and the next great idea could be yours. ♪ >>> an
-- who told him to go after romney, david plouffe. was it axlerod? >> it's not axlerod. they are former partners. that's doubtful. megyn: is this somebody trying to throw plouffe under the bus. >> the wheels come off in the end and with one as close as this one you have an exhausted team with everybody second guessing. you are looking at internal polls that may be different than the public polls, maybe not. i get blamed for losing minnesota when reagan won 49 states. even after that dan quayle once said anyone could have run reagan's 1984 campaign. donald duck could have. that's the way the game works. megyn: you have done this what we are about to watch these candidates do this last four-day hall. what is this like for them? what are they going through? >> they are on adrenaline pushing through to the end, the entire team is. you are running on fumes really. and, look, you want to hit the tape with nothing left. you want to lit election day with nothing left. both these campaigns will do that. usual exhausted. and literally you know, almost zombie walking a lot of them will be the last
